Go back in history this weekend with the Shadows of the Blue and Gray

Posted by wlpo on October 5, 2015

The “Yanks” and “Rebs” will renew their hostilities again this weekend in Princeton.

After a year’s hiatus, the Shadows of the Blue and Gray returns to City County Park this Saturday and Sunday. The encampment opens Saturday at 10 with the Grand Entrance of Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln in the early afternoon before the first battle reenactment starts at 3. The first day wraps up with an evening dance and live music. Sunday’s battle reenactment starts at 3 followed by a parade and medical scenarios.

It will cost you $5 to check out Shadows of the Blue and Gray. Boy and Cub Scout troops are encouraged to camp out overnight with the soldiers on Saturday.
